This hotel is just super nice: big rooms, very nicely decorated. Hotel is quite close to the lechmere T station, so getting to downtown is easy. Also running trails along the river is just across the street. There is even a recommended running route map in the room. A tip for parking; the hotel has valet, but self parking at...

Hello Soren! Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review! I'm glad you were able to enjoy the running trail along the river and had easy access to the T station to head into town! We hope you stay with us on your next trip to the Boston/Cambridge area! -Michal

I got to stay in the Hotel Marlow for a conference in July, 2013. Before the conference I had a chance to walk around Cambridge and Boston. The location was great, since it was a short walk into Boston. Also, the trolley green line was right around the corner, so it was easy to hop on and travel around Boston...

We checked in 30minutes ago and already have had service issues. We booked a room for our anniversary and we're put in a room with separate beds.

Got a deal on this hotel through Hotwire. It was located in Cambridge right across from everything. The T is a 10 min walk to the red line and a 10 min walk to the blue line.

The service at the hotel was memorable and the staff was very friendly. As our room wasn't ready when we arrived they offered us a free continental breakfast at their restaurant and were very helpful with all our requests. There is a big Cambridge Mall connected to the hotel to the parking which made shopping (even for groceries) very easy....

Everything about our stay was wonderful, from the greeting as we pulled into the courtyard, the welcoming front- desk staff, to the complimentary cocktails, and appetizers. The room was very quiet, and the decor is tasteful. The bed is by far the most comfortable hotel bed that I have ever slept in. it was like a nest. The hallways are...

Located next to Cambridgeside Galleria, this hotel is in a great location to sightsee in Boston. Short walk to the t stop or an inexpensive cab ride to downtown, this hotel provides some upscale pampering without the downtown Boston prices. Parking is reasonable.

Like most Kimpton properties, the Marlowe is a fun design statement, hip but not overbearing. It's in a good location in Cambridge, just across the river from Boston, so it's a better value than the 4/5 stars over there. I got a good deal via expedia and couldn't have been happier in my deluxe king view room, overlooking a side...
